Manager of Paws pet-sitting service. I have worked for Paws since 1993 when Patty hired me after I had used Paws to walk my very active Golden Retriever while I recovered from foot surgery. At first I was employed part time but left my nursing career in 2000 to work full time and now manage Paws along with pet sitting in the Northborough, Westborough, Southborough and Hopkinton areas. My past nursing experience has been helpful with pets needing medications, insulin and fluids. Also I am certified in Dog and Cat First Aid by the Red Cross. I have owned dogs over 35 years, presently two Golden Retrievers Emily and Ellie, also a rescue Coton de Tulear named Rosemary. I enjoy training them and competing in Obedience and Agility. All” my girls” are also Therapy dogs. I also work part time as an assistant dog trainer. When not involved in all my dog activities I am an avid quilter and enjoy making a line of doggie themed tote bags under the label “ The Sew Nutty Stitcher”!
